Death Wish*** E7 6b
[Death Wish, 3 kb]27m.

Rockfax Description
A tremendous pitch which requires careful rope work. It is only E6 if the good peg on Stairway to Heaven is clipped. Follow Barracuda to the bush in the main break (peg above). Traverse 2m right and make one move up before continuing the traverse to a small corner - small cam in a flake and good peg on Stairway to Heaven to the right. Crux moves up rightwards end at a break and a move right into another small corner. Take the wall on right to finish. Lower-off. © ROCKFAX

FA. Pete Gomersall, Duncan Drake 1980. Pete Gomersall puts up one of the UKÕs first E7s, rejecting the use of bolts and in-keeping with the tradition of the approach to free climbing on this wall.
